Houston powerhouse Letoya Luckett was remarkably convincing as Frankie and Kyla Pratt as the beautiful, emotional-wrecked Stoney, artfully combined vulnerability and strength in her performance. Talented Demetria McKinney stood out among her co-stars and delivered an irresistible performance as Tisean. You may have also seen her before on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.

Other standout performances among the casts were actors Michael Finn in his first national theatre tour as Detective Strode, and Carson Pursely, who you may recognize from her TV role in Necessary Roughness (USA Network), impressively portrays over three different characters in the show. Last, but not least the hilarious performance of Javon Johnson as the women’s trifling, boss Luther and accomplished stage and film actor Ali Carter as the Harvard educated Keith, Stoney’s love interest, which you can currently watch in Dog Eat Dog on Netflix.
